Dog owners, beware!

Toronto Police released a statement Tuesday afternoon of multiple dogs falling ill in the GTA.

Reports of an individual spreading an unknown substance on the grass near Summerland Terrance and Dundas Street West in Etobicoke have pet owners on high alert.

A number of dogs who visited the park are reported sick, and Animal Services have been notified.

These reports are certainly troubling for dog walkers and owners, especially when so many pets are out and about enjoying the summer weather.

One anonymous resident who visits dog parks in the area tells Daily Hive the reports have her thinking twice about where she will take her dog. 

“I thought dog parks were safe, but it looks like some people don’t seem to care about animals unfortunately. You never know what dog park could be next,” she said. 

Naturally, pet owners across the city have taken to social media to voice their concern.
